LG Electronics in 2020 announced 13 new LG OLED models led by three new art-inspired GX Gallery series 4K Ultra HD TVs, 88- and 77-inch class Real 8K models and an all-new OLED screen size – 48-inch. Unveiled at CES 2020, the new LG OLED TVs – and new 8K and 4K LG NanoCell LCD TVs – are designed to deliver exceptional picture quality and innovative design with upgraded performance and artificial intelligence-enabled features that bring movies, sports and video games to life.

The 2020 LG OLED ZX Real 8K models, delivering four times more detail than 4K TV and 16 times more than HDTV, exceed the strict requirements established by the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) official industry definition for 8K Ultra HD TVs. The 88- and 77-inch LG OLED models are among the first to earn the new CTA 8K Ultra HD logo.

For 2020, while offering new versions of the two popular 4K UHD series (models CX, BX) in 77- (CX only), 65- and 55-inch class sizes, LG is also bringing the unparalleled picture quality of LG OLED TV to an all-new screen size – 48-inch. This 4K UHD unit (model OLED48CX) reproduces even sharper picture quality with 8 million-plus pixels on the 48-inch screen, density comparable to that of a 96-inch 8K TV.

New for 2020, the Apple TV app allows customers to subscribe and watch Apple TV+ and Apple TV Channels as well as access their iTunes video library and buy or rent more than 100,000 films and TV shows. Customers with 2018 and 2019 LG TV models will also be able to enjoy the Apple TV app this year.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple is smartly spreading Apple TV far and wide which will help not only Apple TV+, but also help fuel the sale of devices within the Apple ecosystem. People will want iPhones and iPads for Apple TV app and Apple TV+ continuity.


  1. 8K is complete overkill for the home market. 4K is more than good enough. Heck 1080p stills looks fine. Remember AVENGERS ENDGAME was finished and projected in DCI 2K (2048 × 1080) and looked pretty darn good.

    What next – 16K? – for the band of mutants with high enough super-retina eyeballs to appreciate it?

  2. They are doing 8K for two reasons, one, because they can, Two, they need somewhere to go from here to keep making $$..

    You can get really good looking 75″ 4K sets now for under a $1000, perhaps as low as $7-800 in some cases.. Somewhere the resolution gravy train will dry up… though 8K is more than one will ever need.. and I think I’ve heard of 16K..

    I want to see 4K short throw projectors drop to under 1.5K, o, less 100-150″ screens, though you’d need a light controlled room for optimum viewing.

    1. Absolutely it’s just “the next thing” in TV manufacturers minds to make money with but as you say, the end is nigh for perceptible increased resolution TV’s. The real story is large bargain priced 4K sets. All that extra resolution can only be appreciated with a larger (as in huge) TV.
